Does the live data I purchase from IB automatically load itself into ONE? I'm not a tech guy but would this software indentify and integrate with my broker i guess is what I am asking?

 

 

Thanks

I'm currently in the middle of a 1 month trial with ONE and while I'm impressed with the product, I'm not so much with their support.  After watching all of the links that support the product, I still had a couple of specific questions.  For example, I have portfolio margin with tos, I wanted to know if the current actual margin could be displayed on the ONE software.  I received an automated response which linked me to the subject regarding margin which was the same link I had already watched.  I had another question about commissions, and had the same experience.  Granted, I did not follow up with another email either time, but to be honest, I don't think I should have to.

ONE won't reflect portfolio margin, only Reg T.  This is because PM is influenced by your entire portfolio of positions.  What's your Q on commissions?

My commission schedule is $7 & 0.65/contract.  On the configuration, there is a round trip option for commissions, I can find where to enter the 0.65/contract but not the 7 ticket fee.  Also, many of my trades (hopefully) expire worthless, how do I expire the trade?

I don't think you can tell ONE to factor in a ticket charge, you would have to input it manually every time.  With that said, you should try to get TOS to drop that ticket charge for you.  Chat with the guys on the trade desk by going to thinkorswim.com.  They might offer you something like a buck or better per contract if you have decent volume.  

 

I also don't think ONE will expire the trade, you will need to go into the trade log and zero out the closing positions for both price and commissions to reflect an expired trade.

Thanks Kim for arranging this discount for us!

 

By the way, if you have previously tried the trial for ONE, you will not be able to sign up using the link above. In that case, you should ask ONE to configure your account for the SteadyOptions discount. The best way to do that is to create a ticket at their helpdesk (requires registration): http://optionnetexplorer.helpserve.com/default_import

 

Once they configure your account, you can log in to the downloads area (accessible from their home page), using the same userid/password from your prior subscription(s), and your renewal options should reflect the discount.

As I am considering purchasing the ONE software I am wondering what advantage it is to the ThinkorSwim software especially for someone that actually uses TOS? What are the advantages?

 

Thanks to anyone that can answer

ONE has a lot of features that TOS doesn't have. For example, 5 minutes resolution while TOS gives you only EOD prices. You can build a position and track it, including current PnL, adjustments etc.

 

You can just try it for 1 month - it's only $43, and then decide.

Kim,

 

Since you use IB as your brokerage, do you place all of your trades directly from ONE?   

 

I've just started my account at IB and it is not very intuitive in my opinion so if I can just place and manage trades from ONE, it seems like that would be worth the cost of ONE.

 

What are your thoughts?

I've just started using TOS and you can get very fine resolution option pricing using OnDemand (orange tab in upper right).  Basically a DVR of the market.  Main downside is it doesn't seem to calculate greeks but easy enough using an option pricing model.  I'm happy.   The position tracking is a nice feature of ONE, but for my option trading account size ONE is a bit expensive.

Additionally, Is there a way to automatically sync the IB trades to "ONE" or does each trade need to be entered manually into both "ONE" and IB?  (the first is to track and the second is to actually place the order).

 

 

 

 

Interested to know this too....

The first 6 months is handled as extended free period. After 6 months, you will be billed directly by ONE at SO discounted rate of $450 GBP (around $600 USD).

The are few competing products, but most of them are much more expensive. For example:

http://www.optionvue.com/pricing.html

 

2k/year

 

I'm not familiar with similar product that is for free.

Optionvue has always been a really excellent program but...as you pointed out..it is SO damn expensive.

But they really are way better than the competitors.

The problem is that to get the maximum use of the software, there are additional, separate, modules,and data feeds etc, that ALSO cost additional money.

But, if money was no object, and you could have the entire bundle of products they offer, you would really enjoy yourself and would probably never leave your computer!

I thought ONE and other platforms were trading UI's integrated with brokers' sites and would do this automatically.

 

Are they all like this?

 

If you have to keep shuttling info back and forth, or even just forth, seems like things would get tedious real fast.

Not sure if this is the best place for this question.  However, while waiting for my Interactive Brokers account to be approved and funded, I'm looking at software options.  Unfortunately, it looks like ONE software is Windows only.  That's a non-starter for me as I run Mac here.  Every time I fire up my Windows virtual machine it has to spend 30 minutes patching and rebooting...no thanks.

Can anyone recommend any modern software that runs on Mac?

Anyone is using IB and importing the trades from IB to ONE ?

It seems that IB changed their website and i can't find the 'legacy simple' format to export my trades.

I will contact ONE support, but was wondering if i'm the only one in that situation.

@Djtux, take a look at my TradeLogIB script. It is much more convenient than a default IB import feature in ONE:

Thanks, i saw your post about the python script. Very interesting but haven't taken the time to see how i can integrate that to my workflow.

My IB and ONE are not on the same machine and not even on the same network.

Actually my IB and ONE are not on the same machine as well. But IB machine is accessible via VPN, so my script connects from ONE's to a remote IB machine (there is a --host parameter in the script, plus TWS needs to be configured to allow API connection from specific IP addresses).

 

It is also possible to run the script locally and somehow copy .csv file to the machine where ONE is installed.

 

As for me, I hated waiting till the end of the session, and then login in into the Web interface each time, searching export e.t.c. That's too much work. But you are right, everyone's workflow is different.

I have the Python app downloaded and the script packet and looking to delve into making this work. I am pretty comfortable around computers but doing something like this would be a first for me. You did a great and though job with the instructions BTW.

Does anyone else have issues with ONE today? It crashes when trying to connect to TWS.

Yes, I also have the issues with ONE crashes after connecting to real-time TWS feed.

I've already opened a ticket and sent ONE's support detailed info and logs. They said they are investigating the issue.

Seems the issue is specific to IB datafeed. However deselecting [ ] "Use IB Option Chains" flag in ONE settings does not help to resolve the issue.

ONE support send me a test build, I tried it and found it fixes the issue with crashes.

 

They asked me not to distribute this test build as they are going to create a new version for release. So we can expect an official fix to be released soon.
